We have a big goal, because we want to make a big difference. At this time, our focus is to break down barriers preventing girls and women from reaching their full potential by creating a scholarship fund and by supporting girl and women-focused charities in Toronto, Canada and beyond.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 by the end of 2021 for Jo’s Foundation. As a first step, the funds will help us establish the JDC Memorial Scholarship at the University of Waterloo for a female business major in the Math Faculty, Jo’s Alma Mater. With women still underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programming, we feel it is important to support the success of young women in this field.
In addition to the scholarship, we aim to disburse to support charities that:
- Empower women to be financially independent
- Support, educate, improve access and create community for girls and women in varying life stages to be self-confident, build supportive networks and improve their quality of life
- Provide opportunities to support entrepreneurial efforts, including access to training, professional development and mentorship
Thank you for your support and for remembering Jo.
Bless you with love and light.
Stanley, Jolène & Dylan
